1Thou Who didst stoop below
To drain the cup of woe,
Wearing the form of frail mortality,
Thy blessèd labors done,
Thy crown of victory won,
Hast passed from earth, passed to Thy home on high.
2It was no path of flowers
Which through this world of ours,
Belovèd of the Father, Thou didst tread;
And shall we in dismay
Shrink from the narrow way,
When clouds and darkness are around it spread?
3O Thou Who art our life,
Be with us through the strife:
Thy holy head by rudest storms was bowed;
Raise Thou our eyes above,
To see a Father’s love
Beam, like a bow of promise, through the cloud.
4Even through the awful gloom
Which hovers o’er the tomb,
That light of love our guiding star shall be;
Our spirits shall not dread
The shadowy way to tread,
Friend, Guardian, Savior, which doth lead to Thee.
5Our eyes behold Thee not,
Yet hast Thou not forgot
Those who have placed their hope, their trust in Thee;
Before Thy Father’s face
Thou hast prepared a place,
That where Thou art there they may also be. Amen.
